This chocolate stout cake is fudgy, rich and super chocolatey. Such a fun dessert for St. Patrick’s Day!
You guys, this cake. It’s one of the most delicious cakes I have ever eaten. Here’s the real kicker: I don’t like beer. For some reason though, I’ve always wanted to try a stout cake because they are some of the richest and fudgiest cakes out there. And this cake is no exception! Since I’m not a fan of beer, I totally expected not to like this cake and was planning on depending on friends and family to be my taste-testers for this one. But to my surprise, I could not put the fork down! So, if you’re like me and don’t like beer, don’t shy away from it.
The Guinness flavor is subtle but you can definitely taste it. This cake has such a unique flavor! The beer deepens the chocolate flavor in the cake so much and makes it super fudgy. It’s such a fun recipe to make for St. Patrick’s Day or for the beer loving person in your life (or non!). Even though I’m Irish, St. Patrick’s Day isn’t a huge holiday in our home. I always enjoy the foods and desserts that come along with it though, so I always try to make things that coincide with it like my Irish soda bread and we usually have corned beef and cabbage for dinner just for fun.
You need to try this cake at least once! It is so unique and insanely delicious. If you aren’t a fan of beer, you can substitute half (or all) of it for coffee or water. Coffee is the best alternative as it would deepen the chocolate flavor.
